El Tango De Roxanne

First there is desire
Then… passion!
Then… suspicion!
Jealousy! Anger! Betrayal!
Where love is for the highest bidder,
There can be no trust!
Without trust,
There is no love!
Jealousy.
Yes, jealousy…
Will drive you… mad! Continue reading

New, Not Improved

150511_004

Do you know what would make me happy? If Flickr went back to the way it used to be – back before Yahoo purchased it and started to make it more and more like Tumblr. I want to hit a next button and wait for a new page. I do not want infinite scrolling. I hate infinite scrolling. It gets laggy and slow after a few page downs. If I click on a picture to see it, when I go back, I go back to the top, not to where I was. Does anyone know some secret way to have the old Flickr? I used to avoid it by using Flickr in Spanish, but they updated the Spanish version to their new horrible system, too. Now they have “improved” it again and it’s beyond irritating. Why do services that people like and use think they need to completely upend their design? When it’s working and popular, why change it?

Into the Light is the theme for this month’s Collabor88. If you love romantic pastels, this is the month for you. Among the highlights are the fabulous top from StoriesYCo by Flowey and this skirt from Tres Blah. The top comes with matching flirty shorts and the skirt comes with coordinating cropped sweatshirts. However, since Collabor88 designers work with a common color palette and theme, it seems that the point is finding new combinations as well. The beautiful quill incense burner is from {anc} and is also from Collabor88. The tea set with books is from dust bunny and was in the March Arcade session.

The Zen of Ironing

150331_004

For me, ironing has always been a peaceful relaxing activity. I would set up the ironing board in the living room by the couch and have the unearned in a basket on one side and an empty basket on the other to place the newly ironed pieces. I would lower the ironing board so I could sit on the couch and watch something on television while I ironed and work away. It’s quiet, peaceful and easy to do, so ironing was a favorite chore.

Quest For Meat

It’s always a bad idea to go shopping when you are hungry but since I so rarely let pixel Gidge eat, she’s always hungry when she shops. Today she stopped over at her favorite butcher to pick up some meat because, hey, meat.

It was also an excuse to go for a stroll in my new shoes from Nardcotix – OMG REMEMBER NARDCOTIX? Well I do, fondly,and I’m excited to have them back in my SLife !

My favorite butcher always gives me a burrito, he’s thoughtful. He’s also a bit dumb because he spells is buritto making it impossible to FIND once I’m ready to eat it. But regardless, I strolled over to a lovely park to enjoy my burrito (spelled right) on this beautiful day. Continue reading

It’s Like Deja Brew All Over Again

Vixen Thibideau has launched a new EVENTS blog (I am spelling her name probably) and it’s called Eloquence SL. I’m always interested in GOOD events coverage, I enjoy SERAPHIM but I think that more GOOD coverage is a positive thing for shoppers and bloggers alike.  Eloquence is currently having  a launch event where many of the designers you know and love have put out free gifts, at the DEJA BREW cafe.

Any excuse to go to DEJA BREW I say. Continue reading

Happy Cinched Birthday

Today is my RL birthday. In RL I will spend it in a meeting room for 8 hours with giant pads of paper and electronic white boards. But In SL I’ve decided to give myself the girly day I deserve, starting with a luxurious bath.

My friend Natalie sent me lovely birthday jewels, in my own birthstone – OPAL – and I ‘m going o wear them all day. I love having a cursed stone as a birthstone. It makes me feel like a super hero with powers to overcome a curse. Continue reading

In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye

0808_003

I know Gidge blogged this dress from Fission a couple weeks ago. I had already put it on and styled it before I saw her blog post and I have not had the energy to change clothes. I do plan to change clothes sometime today. It’s been two weeks and even pixel clothing can get stale.

Sometimes life can change “in a moment, in the twinkling of an eye” and nothing is the same after that. Two weeks ago, that happened to my sister when she learned she had breast cancer. She made me promise not to freak out or worry, so I tried, but I did not succeed. When we all lost my brother to cancer; it was easier. I always assumed he would get cancer from chain smoking all his life and that’s what happened. But my sister does not smoke, does not drink except for a glass of wine now and then and, as a nutritionist herself, has always favored a healthy diet and exercise at a local gym. In essence, she did all the right things and still got got dealt the cancer card.

The Real Reason for Braided Hair

0718_002

My sisters and I know the real reason for braided hair. It’s not to look pretty. It’s to keep your hair neat and untangled. My hair would snarl if you looked at it wrong, so Mom would French braid it. I remember when my parents sent me to spend a week with their friends in Sioux City who were as close to grandparents as I had. When Mom was done braiding it, my skin was stretched taut and I am sure I had a mini-facelift. Under strict orders, I left the braids in while bathing and showering, washing them without unbraiding them – and sure enough, they stayed in place for the entire week. She had no time for loose, casual braids like this lovely one from Anya Ohmai for Hair Fair. A braid that did not ache for a few hours was unworthy of the name.
